Mini Duty Free Haul




Duty Free always seem to attract me whenever I go to the airport, but then I mean, who doesn't love tax free makeup? I wasn't planning on getting an awful lot, and my mum treated me to a couple of these things, but all in all I was quite satisfied with the products I bought.

The first place I practically ran over to was MAC, probably because the airport is the only occasion I feel strongly enough to splurge on high end makeup. I ended up buying two lipsticks, 'Love Lorn' and 'Capricious', only one of them is photographed as my mum had borrowed the other one, but look out for future blog posts featuring these as they are both gorgeous shades.

The other stand I was eager to buy from was Clinique, I actually ended up getting the two items I purchased from the Alicante Duty Free when I was coming home, and with the euro to gbp rate it actually ended up cheaper. The first thing I picked up was a new brush head for my Clinique sonic cleansing brush, I had seen that they had released an anti-blemish version and my old brush head was getting old anyway. The second thing I purchased was another item out of Clinique's anti-blemish range, and it was the cleansing gel. Previously, I had always used the foam with my face brush, but the lady behind the counter recommended I tried using the gel as the combination of the two worked better together. I've only been using these products for a couple of days but I shall update you soon on how well both work.

What is your favourite thing to buy at duty free? Any particular brands?

  6. What a lovely haul! I didn't get any thing from the Duty free when I was going to Morocco but I may have to get some things! I'm stopping off at Spain too so hopefully I can get stuff cheaper because of the currency change too :)
